Nick Blankenburg ‘16 – We are either chasing after something, or we are doing our best to escape from something horrible.
For 21 year old professional American golfer Jordan Spieth, his dream is a 42-regular jacket.
By age 21, Spieth has won 3 PGA tours, including the 79th Masters title that he won over the weekend.
Spieth lead the tournament from Thursday start to Sunday finish. He also tied a masters record of lowest 72 hole scoring record with legend golfer Tiger Woods.
With the win he moved up to number 2 in the world, behind Northern Irish golfer Rory Mcilroy.
With high school golf starting within the last month, this incredible win in such a respected fashion by Jordan Spieth can motivate and reassure the high school golf team a sign that age is just a number, that it doesn’t matter how young they are, or how strong they are.
If they set their minds to their dreams that they can achieve anything whether it’s a win in a big match, or going all state, or even winning a masters championship. That is what Texas native Jordan Spieth dreamed of when he was a kid, a masters championship.
Spieth won by 4 strokes and behind him was English golfer Justin Rose and American golfer Phil Mickelson who from the looks of it, never really threatened him on the scoreboard. Spieth never let them think they were gonna come back and steal his masters title.
The golf teams first match was Wednesday April 15th against Henry Ford II at Rammler Golf course, the team lost with a score of 175 to 159. Leading the Bulldogs with a score of 42, junior Ian Krause really stepped up against the Falcons.
Playing there next match at their home course, Greystone, they will take on the Grosse Pointe South Blue Devils Friday March 17th.
“Jordan Spieth winning the masters at such a young age has started a new era of young professional golfers,” Ian Krause ‘16 said. “By watching him go out there and beat some 16 year old records shows me that anyone can succeed in golf. As long as you set your mind on a goal and commit to doing well the rest will fall into place. That has helped me to stay committed to the game and I know there is always room for improvement no matter what skill level you are at.”
